Be it Irani chai or Hyderabadi biryani, Hyderabad has a treasure of rich food and these restaurants are the oldest and hence guarantee authenticity.

3. Cafe Niloufer

If you want to relish authentic Hyderabadi breakfast make sure you visit Cafe Niloufer. Tea and bun malai here is probably the best breakfast you can ever have. The place aims to serve the same flavour of tea ever since it began which is why they make their own tea powder keeping in mind the colour and flavour.

5. Cafe Bahar And Restaurant

The place at first was just a tea and coffee place along with a provisional store. The owners came down from Iran so the authenticity is super guaranteed. The place is always crowded with people and the kitchen here begins at 4 in the morning and runs till midnight. If at all you want a seat make sure to head early.
